Here is my beadswap necklace with lovely oval carnelian and agate beads that lindy marie sent me. I added two small carnelian beads that I had into the necklace and made a pair of earrings wth the two remaining carnelian oval beads that lindy sent me. Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo of those so will do that tomorrow since its dark now!
Heres a pic of the whole necklace. It is right angle weave with bigger beads added to one side to make the curves.
I didn't know if I was going to have time to participate in this month's YOJ theme, but guess what? I "made" time :) (The housework will always be there LOL!).
Here it is - posted a couple of pics, so you can see the several ways of wearing this necklace (long or short). It's chocka with Carnelian, Citrine, Goldstone, Red Tigers Eye, Rutilated Quartz, Cherry Quartz, Garnet, Orange Quartz and sparkly plummy Swarovski crystals :) I love the copper with these colours - so rich and warm. The idea was to create something that you could wear with jumpers and warmer things, as well as with shirts etc, if you like to layer in autumn as I do... ;)
It is a variation of herringbone stitch made super twisty. Kind of quirky I thought but sits very nicely when worn. Fire agate bead in the centre, with 8mm bronzite beads either side and a few 4m czech firepolish beads.
